DETECTIVES are continuing to question a man and a woman on suspicion of murder.

A 33-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were arrested after a man was found with stab wounds in an Eastmoor flat.

And this morning they are still in police custody.

Police were called to flats on Marsland Avenue at 7.04am on Friday.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, was taken to Pinderfields Hospital where he later died.

Police believe he is Eastern European and in his 20s.

Community support officers stood guard outside the flats on Friday while forensic officers carried out a detailed investigation.

Father of three Mohammad Ali, 33, of Marsland Avenue, said: “It’s a very close community around here. Everyone’s in shock at the moment.

“I don’t know who lived in those flats but they hadn’t been there for very long, a few months.”

Anyone with any information should contact the Homicide and Major Enquiry team on 101.
